I need to put a 1/16" chamfer on a piece of 1/8" thick UHMW. It's an
irregular profile so I need a bearing to walk around the perimeter. I
tried the chamfer bit i have in my router table and the material ran
just under the bearing and landed on the dust shield instead. This
burned a groove into the side of the plastic. I've looked bits that
handle 1/8" material, but haven't found any. Anyone have a source for
a bit to handle this, or another way to do this operation. TIA
I've seen a tool for making chamfers on the edge of formica countertops,
works like a small plane & shaves off the excess material. Would that
work for what you're doing?

Fasten to a piece of mdf, then using a pattern bit to bring the mdf to
match the plastic.
Now turn it over and use the bearing against the mdf
